    I would have played the version of that with the clips from the show, but it's too sappy/too close to home for anyone who lived through it, and I figured "Who needs that?" LOL But kudos to whoever put it together...:-)

    I'm sure it wasn't as cool as a Vista Cruiser.

    I liked those Cutlasses. Had a friend with a cherry in gold with the vinyl top. Chick magnet.

    I was actually surprised when I went down memory lane and figured out/remembered it was a '72...That's the newest vehicle I've ever owned, LOL. Before that, I had access to a '69 Ford stationwagon with the fake wood paneling in high school. Excellent beach mobile! :grin: There's a picture out there of me on my 18th birthday with it that probably won't ever make it to the internet...LOL

    That's funny. My first car was also a POS Olds...a '68 Cutlass, with barely functional brakes. It looked slightly better than this one (same color though):

    Imagine it blue, with a scraped left rear quarter panel. Spittoon on the dashboard, hat rack above the mirror, horseblanket seat covers and a cooler of Busch Beer. Add assorted gear per specific adventure. Figure possibility of stale PBR and rotting animal parts forgotten in the trunk. We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes...It's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses...

    I spent so much money on strippers and booze that I could have had one by now, if I hadn't wasted the rest.

    As much as it pains me to give Government Motors any credit for anything, they've done a damned fine job with the latest crop of Stingrays.

    LOL...I love candy-apple red. A guy I used to hunt with has a gorgeous (garaged) Corvette that color (or very close). I can't remember the year, but it is SO sweet. Not every Corvette looks good to me, but this one was fine with a capital ...um... F. I should check and see if he still has it, in case my ship comes in, LOL.

    Gonna expand this to bucks from last year since--now that I think about it--that's a better way to goose this thread. Hell, throw in ANY deer if you're still thinking about him at this point...:grin:

    Good pic, Bob. We had a guy bring a welding helmet into the office. It worked pretty well when viewing through the tinted office windows, but when we went outside it produced all sorts of weird distortions, multi-images, etc.

    Swampy, probably 20% or so. The favorite shotgun here is either the Savage 220 slug gun or the H&R ultra slug in 20ga. You'll find one of these in 80-90% of guys hands during shotgun season.

    We were supposed to be in the 83% +/- range of totality. I took this picture through my welding helmet just fooling around. It appears to me that I was getting some reflection between the lens of my camera and the glass in the helmet...but if you look just below the larger brighter reflection image, you can see the crescent image that was visible to my eye when looking through the helmet. Thought it was kind of cool. We did get some weird light discoloration, and the temperature did drop noticeably. 20170821_130627 by , on Flickr

    I don't know what percentage I got here. I almost went down to SC to get in the path since I have plenty of contacts there, but it sounded like a zoo and I figured I might need more important favors later. If it weren't the height of heat and skeeter season I might have camped, but it seemed like too much trouble. LOL Here it got noticeably darker, with a strange slate-blue sky and a late-afternoon feeling in the shade, but bright sun where there wouldn't be bright sun in the late afternoon. The sun was behind the treetops where I am, so I didn't try to peek at it (much). If I go blind, it probably won't be from this eclipse anyway. I worked from home today mostly because I wanted to see what the garanimals would do, if anything. Other than the usual enthusiastic greeting from the puddytats at feeding time and a doe crossing my driveway at 9:30, it was pretty much business as usual. Little Miss Tarzan took a nap in the shade on one of the kayaks, and Mr. Boots came out from under the deck to lie on a walkway stone during the darkest period. Once the eclipse had passed, a few of my other regular customers came out from their hidey-holes to eat some Friskies, but that was it. I'll be submitting this to National Geographic for their big special edition, so keep your eyes peeled.

    Didn't notice a change in temperature. It is overcast and rainy so I just caught about 3 4-sec glimpses of it.
